内容紹介

Magic. Romance. Rivals. Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Falling Kingdoms, and Tamora Pierce.

Before the age of seventeen, the young men and women of Jerar are given a choice --pursue a trade or enroll in a trial year in one of the realm's three war schools to study as a soldier, knight, or mage...

For fifteen-year-old Ryiah, the choice has always been easy. Become a mage and train in Combat, the most prestigious faction of magic.

Yet when she arrives, Ry finds herself competing against friend and foe for one of the exalted apprenticeships. Everyone is rooting for her to fail--first and foremost among them is Prince Darren, the school prodigy who has done nothing but make life miserable since she arrived.

Will Ry survive, or will her dream go down in flames?

レビュー

Praise for Rachel E. Carter's bestselling The Black Mage series: "It takes a lot for me to truly fall in love with a book. I think I maybe do this once or twice a year. This is one of those times. I found a new fantasy story that sucked me in (completely). Imagine my surprise that it was YA too. Y'all know me. Normally, I go for the NA and above reads. But this series...it just has that something "extra." That extra punch that drags you in and won't let go. I hope you give it a try. It's THAT good." - Scarlett Dawn, NYT & USA Today bestselling author of Forever Evermore "A magical academy where potential mages train and study all things magic, a love-hate relationship with an arrogant prince, and a determined and unyielding female heroine? Sign me up." - Raisa Santos - TheFandom.Net "Falling somewhere between the magic of Hogwarts and the excitement of Hunger Games, this story resides in the niche rather nicely!" - Margaret Faria - InD'Tale Magazine "This has undoubtedly become one of my favorite YA fantasy series. Hands down, no competition." -Melissa, EverSoMela, top Goodreads reviewer "Rachel E. Carter has a definite fan in me forever, keep doing what you're doing Rachel because you write an amazing story!" -Emmeline, The Book Herald, top Amazon reviewer

5つ星のうち 2.0 Tacky romance, tacked-on action 2017/3/6
投稿者 Jacob Kreutzer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I suppose I'm not the target market for the book. I was fooled by the summary and the reviews. I'll try and explain why I didn't like it and why you might or might not like it.

The first thing to understand is that this book is focused on romance first, interpersonal drama second, and action a distant third. The second thing to understand is that the romance is almost a parody of YA female-targeted romance. You have the guy with gemstone colored eyes that change color with his moods. You have the girl who's a scrappy tomboy that isn't confident in her looks. The guy is a complete unrelenting bastard but he occasionally shows off a softer side... only when he's alone with the girl. Also, the guy is super-talented with magic. Also, he's a prince.

Although we open with an action scene the action stuff is then firmly pushed to the back burner. This is really exemplified by the end of year test. We have 22 young combat mages competing for five spots. The first part of the competition is a series of one on one duels. A tournament designed to identify the best fighter? Nope, just one fight each. The second part of the competition is an oral examination grilling the candidates on combat scenarios. This happens off screen. To repeat for emphasis: the author yada-yadas her way through half of the test that is at the center of the climax of the book.

If you're looking for a straightforward romance with a sprinkling of magic stuff in the background, this is for you. If you wanted to cheer for an underdog protagonist as she kicks ass and takes names after learning magic, not so much.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Republished books (1-3) with slightly different titles (old books taken down). Great read if you don't already have them. 2017/2/10
投稿者 C. Au - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Ok so I bought and read these books (1-3) in November of 2015 so I was excited to see a book 4 and a prequel but when I went to click on the link to the series, it claimed I had none of the books. I looked closer and these books claim a published date of 2017 and make no mention of having been released earlier. I also noticed a slight title change (old books were The Black Mage: First Year, The Black Mage: Apprentice, and The Black Mage: Candidate). Those books are no longer in the system.

So just beware if you think these seem familiar it may be because they are. I guess they got republished and the old ones taken down but this is kind of foul play since it could sucker you into buying books you have already purchased before.

I really loved these books and am super excited though to have a prequel and a book 4. I'm just not happy about the republishing sleight of hand.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Great Story, Good Pace, and a Few Twists 2017/3/29
投稿者 Tina Morley - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I really enjoyed reading First Year and getting to know the protagonist, Ryiah. Some events at the end of Non-Heir (the Prequel) and the beginning of First Year (Book 1) overlap. Instead of seeing the events through Prince Darren's eyes, you get to see them through Ry's eyes. In fact, from my understanding, the rest of the Black Mage series is through her eyes. She is a very likable person - a girl who didn't grow up with privileges that included the best teachers. She has to work twice as hard to keep up with the upper class and royalty to survive the first year at the academy.

Even though Ry is a bit of an outcast, she is resourceful and quickly forges a friendship with one of the girls who is not part of Prince Darren's clique. Ry even manages to have several conversations with the prince, which is uncustomary. However, he's a disagreeable sort and she's not sure that she can trust him.

The academy is all about training in different fields from learning about a variety of different subjects, training in magic and practicing combat. Ry didn't grow up with a library of books. She didn't have a mage to explain magic or a knight to train her in combat. Can Ry possibly keep up with the elite and succeed at earning one of the coveted 15 apprenticeships?

The story keeps a good pace with a few twists. There are plenty of interesting characters. I'm glad that I read Non-Heir first because some of the characters were in the prequel, which gave them more depth. I think First Year is a great story and I would be happy to read more in the Black Mage series.

5つ星のうち 4.0 An exciting start to a hopefully thrilling series 2017/3/21
投稿者 EmIpsaLoquitur - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
“Talented student attends magical school to hone their abilities” is not a particularly new concept in fantasy, especially in the YA universe. However, Carter manages to avoid making First Year feel like a rehashing of tired old tropes.

Ryiah, Alex, and their classmates and teachers jump off the page. No character feels strictly one-note, and each is filled with the self-contradictions that make characters feel real. All of the characters--including Ryiah--made me want to laugh, cry, cheer, or smack them in the face. Sometimes all at once.

It’s hard to judge the world-building at this point. Because so much of the book takes place at the Academy, we see very little of the kingdom of Jerar. And it’s clear that Carter is no fan of intentional exposition. While this makes for a tighter story--no three-page break-ins just to explain a concept or history to the reader--it does mean readers are left piecing hints together about what the rest of the kingdom is like and what the next three books will hold.

Carter’s writing is tight. She doesn’t mince words, and it means that even scenes that could drag the writing down (like long study sessions or physical drills) don’t interrupt the pacing. I’m excited to see how she further fleshes out the world and characters she’s created. Ryiah’s friends, foes, family, and will-they-won’t-they romantic interest will hopefully continue to grow and add nuance to the world Carter has created.

I highly recommend giving this book a chance.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Joyful Discovery of a new 'lioness"! 2017/3/14
投稿者 Loriden - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A number of years ago I stumbled upon Tamara Pierce’s “Lioness series” in an airport bookstore. Four grand daughters subsequently shared my enthusiasm for a feisty heroine facing and overcoming the special challenges of being a girl in a male environment. We all loved that reading adventure.

Now, at age 95, I cannot believe I have discovered another “lioness” in a story that seizes the reader and does not let go. Crarter has succeeded admirably in creating an exciting scenario for the story of a group of young people competing for peak physical and mental excellence in an academy designed to test their endurance to the limit.

This is the next- generation series of girl triumphant, a little edgier, but with problems that are still familiar as women continue to struggle for a level playing field. How I wish my granddaughters had daughters ready to enjoy with me!
